Sony Tablet S overview


This is guest post by Melissa of www.cheapstingybargains.com.
A markedly fine addition to the tablet world, the Sony Tablet S, released back in September, is still garnering attention for its features and quality.  The only competitors that really stack up to the Sony Tablet S are Samsung and iPad versions of the tablet.  Available in both 16GB and 32GB memory versions, get ready to fire up your PlayStation certification and enjoy the impeccable streaming and video capability.  Powered by the Android OS Honeycomb 3.2, which came out right before the Tablet’s release in September.  Folks that are on the fence about which high-end Android powered tablet to choose are taking a serious look at the sturdy yet light, high quality material and manufacturing made by the original tech giant.  Another bonus is the 6-month free trial of Sony’s Music Unlimited.  The wedge shape of the body reduces glare when laid upon a flat surface.  Micro-USB port and full sized SD card reader are along the side with the headphone jack, power and volume buttons, and speakers.  Camera for video chat, DLNA-compatible speakers, and pretty loaded software features right out of the box with Gmail, Google Talk, Google Books, Sony’s Video Unlimited Service and PlayStation, there’s even a universal remote app.  By using their own proprietary software from the Sony HomeShare premium universal remote, they were able to make the app on the Tablet S superb in comparison to other tablets that are trying to do the same thing.  They made the same move when it came to developing the camera for the Tablet S, by swiping the technology from their own brand to make it one of the best tablet cameras possible.  In the end that contributing factor is what makes the Tablet S such a strong competitor in the cut throat tablet race for market share, their use of Sony’s strengths, patents and technology to build the best piece of technology possible.

HTC Titan features and specification

HTC Titan is the first Windows Phone 7.5 Mango phone to make it to the market.

Its bigger size is comfortable for watching HD videos, web browsing and viewing  image without beign microscopic effect on it.  The S-LCD capacitive screen of the HTC Titan has WVGA resolution and not a qHD resolution of Sensation XE because WP& isn’t very flexble with different resolution like Android.

One of the main novelties brought by the latest WP build 7.5 Mango is multi-taskin. It still isn’t true multitasking thing are being done the iOS way. This can be too restrictive for some apps. Windows Phone 7.5 can be controlled by voice only- you ditate a text, emails, have the phone read out the reply, you can initiate searches and more. Other Os’s are doing it too (Android ) but voi ce command are a big part of iOS(Siri).
HTC Titan has a 8 mega pixel camera with a 28mm wide angle f2.2 aperture lens and Back-side illuminated (BSI) sensor. The F2.2 aperture number means that the phone’s camera can capture image with more light, which is coupled with BSI sensor will produce very well-light images even in darker environments. You can record 720p HD @ 30 fps video but not a 1080p full HD video may due to software restriction. It also feature a 1.3MP front facing camera for self portiait video call.
